As you all know, I started making green smoothies back in December. Most of the time I share my experiments (new recipes) with y'all on Instagram (@curlsandmo) but a few times I shared a pre-made green smoothie drink by Naked.
The few times I posted it, I got comments from other ladies warning me not to drink them and expressing their concern. I didn't think much of it until a few weeks later when my friend, Camille, sent me this “Naked Juice Admits It’s Not So Natural”. I was mortified. Then I stopped in Starbucks and low and behold ALL of the Naked drinks were gone from their shelves. They were replaced by new Evolution smoothies. (I'm not sure if Evolution is a subsidiary or what but what I DO know is Starbucks is serious about their customers. So if Naked was gone...y'all catch my drift.)
My discovery soon turned to anger. I was mad. Yet ANOTHER large corporation had profited from blatant lies. And not just any company. A company who was supposed to be helping Americans be healthy. Then Camille sent me this “Naked Juice class action settlement announced: Here's how to claim $45 from PepsiCo even without proof of purchase”.
While it doesn't erase what they did, I DEFINITELY submitted my claim. If you have purchased a Naked drink between September 27, 2007 to August 19, 2013, click this link. Submit your info and you'll receive $40 if you don't have proof of purchase but if you DO have proof of purchase you'll receive $75. I'm upset at myself for not having a receipt for any of mine.
Have you purchased a Naked Juice? PLEASE share this with everyone you know.
The deadline to submit your claim is December 17, 2013.
